According to the EPA, every home in Missouri is at moderate to high risk of household Radon exposure. In fact, 1 in 15 home in the United States is estimated to have Radon levels exceeding the EPA’s recommended action level. Those numbers are assessed at even higher occurrences here in Missouri, which are estimated to be 1 in 5 homes. Your home’s age and your neighbor’s test results have no impact on whether or not your home is at risk. Radon levels vary drastically from home to home and the only way to know your home’s Radon level, is to have your home tested.
Getting your home tested for Radon is the first step to ensuring a healthy and safe living environment. Radon testing is a very simple process and our technicians perform in-home testing with little to no disruption to your daily life.
EnviroTech Radon Solutions uses the latest technology available through the industry-leading Sun Nuclear continuous Radon monitor: model 1030 RadonSentinel. This model offers not one, but six Radon detectors which result in higher sensitivity readings and more reliable data with fewer variations, giving you assurance of the most reliable results.
All of our monitors are approved for use in all real estate transactions and are verified by the EPA for accuracy, callibrated yearly and checked on a regular basis for quality assurance and control. All of our testing monitors are tamper-resistant.
When your testing begins, one of the technicians will set up a continuous radon monitor in the lowest living area of your home and configure it for 48 hours of continual monitoring.
After the 48 hours have passed, our technician will return to your home to retrieve the monitor and we will begin the process of analyzing your home’s results.
After we begin the process of analyzing your home’s test results, we will generate you easy-to-read results report that correlates dates and times as well as environmental factors (such as temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure) present with the test readings. This report consists of an easy-to-read hourly chart of the monitor’s readings along with a summary of the findings and our recommendations for the next step. This report is most often delivered to your inbox the same day as the testing monitor is retrieved.
Protect your family’s health and happiness by keeping your home radon levels safe. Reach out to us for radon inspection, testing, and mitigation.
